Differences:
– they have different beginning moves and end moves by putting their hands on their knees (Boyd & Katie, Erica & Tia)
– in the traditional dance we spin in a circle (Nathan & Connor)
– the YouTube one had a hand swing (Tyson & Brody)
– they don’t do the open and shut hand gesture in the YouTube one (Logan & Wyatt)

Similarities:
– they both are dances about chickens (Ryan & Josiah, Cohen & Rachel)
– they have the same music (Maricela & Brian)
– they both flap their wings in the dance (Madison & Ginger)

Everyone in the class voted that they like the traditional Chicken Dance the best.
